"New York's Strongest"

Worth Street's alternate name "Avenue of the Strongest," refers to the city's Department of Santitation which should tell you all you need to know about the eclectic charm - or lack thereof - of this street. While little is actually wrong with Worth Street, it's largely dull and clerical for those who don't work there; it's home to the headquarters of the New York City Health and Hospitals Corporation at Number 125, the Department o Health and Mental Hygeeine, and the Department of Sanitation, as well as the New York County Supreme Court and Daniel Patrick Moynihan Courthouses. All useful places to visit when in need, no doubt,but hardly the basis on which the next trendy neighborhood is predicated. With the exception of a few fast-food joints like Subway, there aren't too many places to eat (although Compose is the closest thing you'll find to a "nice" night out, and has a good reputation), so come stocked up on sandwiches if you have an appointment in the neighborhood

"Quite Strictly Pragmatic"

Federal Plaza is home to various federal buildings, including Immigration and Naturalization services. It is a nice area to stroll by if you are walking down Boradway because there are some nice bench lined resting areas. The Plaza is surrounded by Delis and convenience stores, so it is surprisingly not a bad place to have a picnic. Its proximity to Canal st and Brooklyn Bridge, makes it a nice addition to a leisurely summer stroll. There are many useful services around as it is near so many government buildings including Translation, Interpretation, Notarization, and many more such services. There are plenty of fast food places around, including 4 Starbucks outlets. It is generally a pretty convenient area to be in.
